Learn to cry for Krsna………..…....

This should always be our prayer, to learn to cry for Krishna. But not tears of the eyes; the tears of the heart. Ah! Because any actor can make tears come from his eyes. If your mother dies, tears come from your eyes. Is that a transcendental ecstacy? Out of sentiments. If somebody crashes into your car, tears will flow from your eyes. Right? So many sentimental reasons we can cause tears to come into our eyes. But are those tears exhibitions of ecstatic love? It is the tears of our heart that a devotee is praying to shed for Krishna, upon chanting His name. And we understand that the only person who could really shed those tears of love from the heart is one who is the most humble loving servant of the Lord. As long as there is ego in our heart, as long as there is material attachment in our hearts, then whatever tears are falling from our eyes are superficial. Therefore when we are looking at another devotee, rather than looking at the tears in his eyes, we should look for the humility of his heart. And even if there are no tears you can understand that there are tears inside. He must be crying for Krishna, such a humble soul. And may be they will come out through the eyes, may be they will not. But otherwise anybody can put up a dramatic performance. That we are not attracted to. And for this reason we need the association of Gurudev and Vaishnavas of our line, our sampradaya to teach us what is true and what is not true, what is good for us and what is not good for us. That is very important. But in our own life we should be calling out for Krishna that when will that day be mine when those tears of love will spring from the core of my heart upon chanting your name, and then let them fall from my eyes if you so desire my Lord. But let them be tears of love!
